Sleeping in Meetings?

If you sleep in meetings, you should memorise a snappy comeback like this one:

A lady who was known as Churchill's main rival in parliament was giving a speech.
Churchill, with his usual enthusiasm for his rival, dozed off while the lady was speaking.
She stopped her speech and awoke Sir Winston by yelling, "Mr. Churchill, must you sleep while I talk?"

Churchill sleepily replied, "No, ma'am. I do so purely by choice."

Very hard to top Churchill. Very.

Agreed. My favourites were the preposition (a preposition is something you cannot end a sentence with / this is the type of pedantic nonsense, up with which, I shall not put) and the coffee (if I was your wife, I'd poison your coffee / madam, if you were my wife, I'd drink it).
